Back in January I shared our experience of losing our sweet, ever-smiling nephew Bennett (he passed away unexpectedly in his sleep at just 20 months old). I've talked with Mandy, his tender, yet ever-strong mother, about her feelings and experiences since...and I have been so uplifted by her! I, along with so many others, have had a broken heart with Bennett gone...and while Mandy and Dave still have huge holes in their hearts, they have been amazing examples to us of depending on the Lord when the storms of life hit us where it hurts the most. They not only have hope, they know God has a plan for them & their family, and they will be with their son again.
Mandy (who just so happens to be a woman who is fantastic with words) has decided to create a blog called Sunshine Promises...here's the description under her adorable header/title:
"I am a Sweetheart to One and a Mommy to Four Loveable Babes, one of which is smiling down on us from Heaven. I am learning to dance in the rain. Come with me on my journey as I make the most out of Life's mud puddles.
Put on your rain boots. Great adventure lies ahead."
If you want to feel uplifted, receive comfort, and enjoy some beautiful writing, go pay a visit to her blog. And while she is a Super Woman in my eyes, she can use all the love, encouragement, and prayers she can get...if you feel moved to, please leave her some comment love and keep her and their family in your hearts.
